Re: Social justice and psychotherapy

I echo Geishawife and I'm also interested in your view of rationality. It has made me reflect a bit on my own experiences... In March I was feeling very anxious due to covid19 and quite terrified of getting it (and I still am). My colleague kept telling me that I just needed to "think rationall...

Third year applying. (The first year I was nowhere near ready).

I'm a bit gutted about Cardiff. I found the deductive reasoning test so much better than numerical - but I know I completely messed up the verbal.

Re: * Honorary Assistant Psychologist - Job Interview * Help / Advice Please!

Different trusts etc will be different in terms of what they ask, but when I had an Hon. AP interview a lot of the questions were more scenario based.

Re: Interview adjustments/alternatives

Hey. I'm not on the autistic spectrum but I can relate to how you've felt some interviews have gone. I have had some awful interviews where I just didn't know what to say and was over in just minutes but I've noticed that I've progressed so much more as I get more experience with interviews. Mock in...

Re: Rejections

Yes I have asked for feedback after all my interviews and I have definitely improved with my responses over time. Recent feedback I've had is to talk a bit more about supervision and look at guidelines around this, and another one was to incorporate more psychologically-minded responses. Both of whi...

Rejections

Hey, I'm hoping someone may have advice. I have been fortunate enough to have been shortlisted for a number of AP roles over the last few years... but with absolutely no success following the interview. Most psychologists have given me great feedback and I've worked on this. However the last few int...

Experience - Catch 22

Hi Everyone, I've had a number of interviews for AP jobs over the past year or so, and I always get given the same feedback. "Someone else has more experience than you, try and get more experience". The experience they refer to is mostly regarding things such as cognitive assessments, and ...

I'm quite sad about Cardiff as that is my preferred choice, but I'm also not surprised because the numerical reasoning test was awful! I don't have high hopes for Bath either but this is only my first time of applying.

Re: Numerical Reasoning test problems

Thank you!

I wasn't planning on leaving it until last minute but I panicked when I went to do it in the week! :lol:

It's all done and dusted now though. Phew! Panic over.

Numerical Reasoning test problems

Hi everyone. I am having issues with the numerical reasoning test. (I know, I shouldn't have left it until now but I panicked when I went to do it the other day). But I have done the verbal reasoning test. Anyway, I started doing it with no problems, accidentally closed the page down. Went to go bac...
